With three national championships in five years, and several other good seasons, Alabama was the program of the 1960s earning the top spot among the ranking of the best college football teams.
Texas made a push with two national titles, and Arkansas managed to tie for second despite not winning an AP national championship, but it was the decade of Roll Tide.
How does this work? Taking all the AP final rankings, CFN devised a scoring system giving every AP national champion 25 points, the No. 2 team 24, No. 3 23, and so on down to the bottom.
